Add the Pure Lard to a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Once melted, sprinkle the cassava flour over the melted lard. Whisk continuously until the flour is dissolved and begins to darken in color, about 3 minutes.


Add the coconut cream and continue to whisk. The mixture should thicken up significantly. Add 2 cups of the broth and continue to whisk until the gravy is smooth. Cook for 5-10 minutes at medium-high heat to thicken the gravy further. If a runnier gravy is preferred, continue to add more broth in ¼ cup increments until the desired consistency is reached.


Remove from the heat and season with sea salt and black pepper, as desired. The gravy will thicken as it cools. The lard gravy will thicken as it cools.
